ViaSat Receives $52 M Satcom Services Contract for Airborne ISR

  • Managed private network delivers military airborne broadband

ViaSat Inc. (Nasdaq: VSAT) will provide broadband airborne satcom services for a U.S. government customer under a contract award valued at $52 million. The one year contract is a renewal for services already provided using ViaSat ArcLight® technology over a managed private network established in 2009 to support military missions for the War on Terror.

ViaSat mobile broadband systems are designed to provide high-speed, beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) communications for media-rich ISR, C2, and other applications. Typical operational data rates range from 1 to 8 Mbps off the aircraft using Ku- and Ka-band satcom links. These systems are flown on over 300 government aircraft such as the C-130, C-17, U-28, and various King Air models, accumulating over 500,000 mission hours.
